Guess we'll see the early skits before Audrey Meadows became Alice Kramden. Some old battleax was Ralph's wife, and she was a hoot!

Got mine pre-ordered from Amazon for $90.99.

October is proving to be an expensive month for me, what with this set and the Laurel & Hardy set!

If your hearing-aid won't do the trick, it can be just as much of a blast to just "see" it! To watch the antics - I mean, after all, the joke is mostly in the delivery, and Jackie Gleason's delivery is all in his face to watch. The lines or dialog rarely change, "Bang-Zoom," "To the moon, Alice!" "Norton, you're a mental case," etc, etc.

Looks like I was wrong, they did add english subtitles on the Best of HoneyMooners so they will probably have english subtitles on this release and if they do, I will pre-order!

First review of the boxset

http://www.fulvuedrive-in.com/review...PI+DVD+Box+Set

Must say the review does not really elaborate much on the discs.

Also it seems they are hinting of the Classic 39 episodes coming to blu-ray.

Ordered mine from Amazon. I already own the HoneyMooners classic 39 set so I hope I'm not double dipping here.

No, the Classic 39 aren't in this set, since CBS/Paramount owns the rights to them. This set only has the kinescopes of the live skits from "The Cavalcade of Stars" and "The Jackie Gleason Show".

Re: Finally!! "The Honeymooners - Lost Episodes" 1951-1957 coming October!!

Does anyone know yet which episodes are included in this set?

Here's the thing... I own all of the "Lost Episodes" DVD's that were released over the years. I believe it is 24 volumes in total. Not sure how many episodes off hand that is but I am wondering if this set is just ALL those episodes restored or if it includes all of them PLUS anything new.

Anyone know?

Does it have english subtitles, I looked at the back cover art on Dvdempire and there is no mention of english subtitles, I hope it does and if not, I would be very disappointed since I am deaf and would need subtitles to understand the show

Surprised that Best Buy would have it, since lately they haven't been carrying releases of older TV shows to any extent.

Pre-ordered mine a little over a month ago from Amazon, so I got it delivered yesterday from UPS.

I too was surprised it was in Best Buy but there were 3 sets available when I arrived last night. They did not have the new Perry Mason set which is typical for them now
